I would keep the canisters on there, as they do not really affect the performance of the bike. If I remember right, one was in between the crankcase and the airbox.

Plus, since these bikes were dual-carbed, I would reccommend doing as little to them, and the bike, as possible. Those year(s) XL 600's were very finicky...
